Midnitestar Productions and the "Annual IH Scout & Light Truck Nationals" were founded in 1990 by a very small group of IH entusiasts including John Glancy and family.  Since its inception, at one time or another Midnitestar Productions has been staffed by the entire Glancy family.

This organization and this event were founded for the sole purpose of preserving and promoting the legacy of International Harvester-built products.    Spotlighted in this wide array of products are, of course, all "Motor Trucks" manufactured by IH, as well as the world's first mass-produced Sport Utility Vehicle, the Scout.
